Tried and tested technology

All Somfy tubular motors work according to the same principle. Frequent testing and a reliable, well-designed technology ensure long life.

The heart of the system is made up of a maintenance-free asynchronous motor. It is robust, powerful and drives the output shaft with reliable quality. A three stage planetary gear system provides the necessary torque to power the application, while an electromagnetic disc brake stops the motor. Finally the limit switch unit can be set using push buttons on the LT HiPro model. In RTS motors the limits are adjusted remotely using RTS controls.

Asynchronous motor – Maintenance-free, lubricated for the entire life from factory. Long running time with integrated thermal protection. High quality parts are used in the construction to provide a long motor life.

Brake – Electromagnetic disc brake engages when power to the motor is removed.

Gear box – Three-part planetary gear box. Silent, powerful and mainenance-free.
